[archive] .asq file

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 03 April 2006]

Hello,
I compiled a program in version 6.2 for the first time (it was created in version 6.0 and compiles cleanly there) and I'm getting the following error message:
ProgramX.asq, line 633: Warning: Missing period

Does anyone know what an .asq file is and where I can go to correct the error??

Thanks!!

RE: [archive] .asq file

It looks like the ouput of using the AcuSQL precompiler. The precompiler compiles the SQL in the COBOL program and creates an intermediate file @.asq before the compiler compiles the COBOL program.

Thanks, Dilbert
However, I looked at the line in the .asq file, and it doesn't seem to be missing a period. It seems to be a "phantom" message

RE: [archive] .asq file

Are you using AcuBench or a command line that includes
-Po .\list\@.asq?

Hi, Dilbert
I'm using acubench with -Po List\@.asq in the compiler options

As it is not an actual compiler error but a compiler warning it is possible that in the previous version you had the compiler option
-w which suppresses warning messages.

I didn't have the -w set for the previous version. Would it be safe to set it just to get a clean compile?
